    Hi, first of all, I didn't know a subtopic of the forum exists for programming.

    Anyway, I would like to know if a WORDPRESS platform can support my idea for this type of site:

    1. Works like a forum but its front end is a blog or somewhat a site that looks wordpressy.
    2. People can register and have account details as well as privileges when they reach a certain post count etc.
    3. People can earn badges for doing certain good things/participating in local events etc. (like Squidoo)

    I wonder, is this possible to be accomplished without programming? Not really experienced in site creation. All I know is how to set up a wordpress site and add plugins and stuff. haha. thank you guys :)

    BTW: I have tried BBpress but it only looks like a wordpress site with a comment page. Is it possible to have a page like articlemarketingrobot.com but then have an articlemarketingrobot.com/forum page?
